something about it focusing on greater transparency with money how politicians spend and misspent cash but don't tear alan spine to. those efforts are falling on stony ground rather touchingly all people in the u.k. really wants is to know that when a politician says he or she will do something they'll do it and that could be the hardest thing of all for the political class. and ongoing hunger strike detainees being forced fadden legal appeals to have the painful practice stopped that's a little of the daily reality behind the barbed wire at the notorious guantanamo bay prison r t gained rare access to the facility to see things out for ourselves here's what the u.s. military chose to show us. transparency is a word repeated by u.s. officials working at guantanamo like a mantra by those few who are comfortable speaking on camera you see the conditions under which the detainees live you get to talk to the people who are responsible
